Unleashing the Power of Three – Thrive Global

Yesterday I was at the grocery store, picking out some yogurt. As I looked at all the rows and dozens of choices, my eyes started to swim.

So many choices!, I thought, shaking my head. I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to refocus. Huffing, I grabbed one of the many choices and moved on.

How many times have you said this to yourself when looking for something in a store? Think about the vegetable aisle. There arent 18 different kinds of broccoli to choose from, there are usually no more than 3 (organic, conventional, and crowns are typical). You just pick a bunch that looks fresh, colorful, and nice, and off you go. Easy peasy.

I decided to experiment and started limiting my daily choices. Soon I noticed a decrease in my levels of stress and anxiety. That irritating monkey-mind began to fade a little. The pace of life seemed to ease towards the slow lane. It became clear as humans, we really do thrive on simplicity.

How can you limit the number of choices you have when there are a multitude of choices staring you in the face? There are so many choices, so much to choose from, so many things to consider!

Soon more and more possibilities for simplicity will reveal themselves to your willing, eager mind.
